Problem of the Week 6 Jack and Jill are maneuvering a 3000 kg boat near a dock. Initially the boat’s position is <2, 0, 3> m and its speed is 1.3 m/s. As the boat moves to position <4, 0, 2> m, Jack exerts a force < 400, 0, 200> N and Jill exerts a force <150, 0, 300> N. (a) How much work does Jack do? (b) How much work does Jill do? (c) Assuming that we can neglect the work done by the water on the boat, what is the
